Maxscend Technologies, a leading mobile digital TV IC solution provider, won this award in recognition of its state-of-the-art technology and outstanding marketing performance. Maxscend Technologies is the only winner in the field of mobile DTV IC solution in Asia Pacific Region.

    Due to the booming of the global mobile DTV market, and the key role that the mobile DTV IC plays in this filed, mobile DTV IC design has become the “gold mine” for next-generation high-tech entrepreneurs.

To this date, MXD0120 is still the world’s smallest DAB/T-DMB demodulator with lowest power consumption, and the only hardware solution that supports the latest EU DAB+ standard. The T-DMB market has witnessed MXD0120’s growing popularity since its April release. In China, it becomes the primary solution for mobile phone and PMP vendors, and has been adopted by 20+ mobile phone manufactures and design houses including Bird and Techfaith. In Europe, the DAB+ support of MXD0120 has proven to be appealing to major service providers. Several top-tier DAB/MP3 solution providers are collaborating with Maxscend for product launch in the near future. In Korea, MXD0120 has gained recognition among module vendors due to its excellent performance cost ratio, and this IC solution from China will soon be seen in this most developed T-DMB market.
